NAME

RAND_cleanup - erase the PRNG state

SYNOPSIS

#include <openssl/rand.h> #if OPENSSL_API_COMPAT < 0x10100000L void RAND_cleanup(void) #endif

DESCRIPTION

Prior to OpenSSL 1.1.0, RAND_cleanup() released all resources used by the PRNG. As of version 1.1.0, it does nothing and should not be called, since no explicit initialisation or de-initialisation is necessary. See OPENSSL_init_crypto(3).

RETURN VALUES

RAND_cleanup() returns no value.

HISTORY

RAND_cleanup() was deprecated in OpenSSL 1.1.0; do not use it. See OPENSSL_init_crypto(3)
